Float Text above ground

So I have a mod that is currently written for ModLoader and uses quite a bit of reflection to achieve what it does, issue is that I have taken over the mod and I need to rewrite it for ForgeAPI as there are quite a few mods that the server wishes to add to the servermodpack.

 

Anyways, all that aside, the Server is a Bukkit server, so no Forge interaction from the server is a requirement. Packets can be sent, I understand that, and I've already started looking at the Forge wiki on the first steps, I've arrived at one of the Don'ts in Forge:

 

"use World.spawnEntity when World.isRemote is true. Never."

 

I have the source code and one of the features is upon recieving a packet, a little floating text entity floats up as you break a block to show experience gained, currently this is achived by having TextEntity extend Entity and unfortunately, World.spawnEntityInWorld(TextEntity).

 

I don't know whether the Don't is outdated and should say World.spawnEntityInWorld(), but I have a feeling that this is the case and I need to figure out a way to go about this properly.

The reason why you should not spawn entities when world.isRemote == true is, because that means you are on the client side. If the client spawns an entity, the server doesn't know about it and it will never update, move or do anything.

But if it's such a simple thing like a floating text, you can sure do it. Especially if you want the entity to appear when a custom packet arrives. In your case the server doesn't even know about the new entity (if it's a bukkit server) so you don't have a choice ;)

    • In 1.15 and before, you could get the item being held/dragged by the cursor using PlayerInventory#getItemStack. This no longer seems to be the case. How do we do this now?
    • I created a particle using  public class NukeParticle extends BasicParticleType implements IParticleData { public NukeParticle(boolean alwaysShow) { super(alwaysShow); } @Override public BasicParticleType getType() { return ParticleTypes.LARGE_SMOKE; } @Override public String getParameters() { return ParticleTypes.LARGE_SMOKE.getParameters(); } } and when I register it using  public class ParticlesReg { public static final RegistryObject<NukeParticle> YELLOW_PART = Regist.PARTICLES.register("yellow_particle", ()-> new NukeParticle(true)); public static void Register() { } } it just seems to crash anyone got an idea to what is going on the crash log is  ---- Minecraft Crash Report ---- // Shall we play a game?

    • Alright, so, I have a question. Is it possible to display multiple cameras when spectating as an entity? How would I achieve that? I know ServerPlayer handles the spectating of entities and accepts a single camera but Platin told me it might be possible to have multiple cameras displaying at once.
